International Macaron Day is March 20th! This year, our favourite macaron maker Kitchening & Co. is donating up to $10,000 worth of macarons to raise money for three of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside charities — Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, Mission Possible and Linwood House. So how can you help the endeavour? The premise is simple:
1) Order Kitchening & Co.’s marvelous macarons online here: macarondayvancouver.com ($10 minimum donation for a 12pc box of macarons, which has a $24 suggested retail value).
2) Make an online donation to a giving group that Kitchening & Co. is hosting using an online giving platform called Chimp (all donations are tax deductible).
3) On March 20th, pick up your macarons at the location of your choice.
4) Kitchening & Co. gives 100% of the money raised to charity.
